Why join us?

The Ecclesbourne School is exceptional. Rated outstanding in four successive Ofsted reports, we provide a first class education in a happy, well-ordered and purposeful atmosphere. We are a non-selective school and committed to an inclusive community ethos. We challenge all our learners to achieve their best.

Our success depends on the people we employ. We expect every member of staff to strive for continuous improvement to make our school even better. Our teaching and support staff work very hard and we want them all to find The Ecclesbourne School a rewarding environment in which to work.

"Learning together for the future" means that everyone who studies or works at The Ecclesbourne School is encouraged to broaden their experience and to be a lifelong learner. We employ ambitious people who want to progress and we support and encourage them to do so. All staff are given the opportunity to access the training and support they need.

What is our School like?

At the core of all that we do is our school motto ‘Integrity, tenacity, service.’ Our aim is to find and nurture the abilities and talents of every child so that Ecclesbournians become caring, confident and fulfilled young adults well prepared for the challenges and opportunities life has to offer. Central to this are student involvement in the House and prefect systems through which all our students feel valued and learn to value others as part of a real school community.

Our 20/20 vision statement ‘learning together for the future’ is evident throughout the school. There is a focused atmosphere conducive to excellent learning, an engaging and broad curriculum and an extensive range of enrichment activities. Consequently our students are well behaved, highly motivated and achieve very high academic standards. The Department for Education’s higher education destination data (July 2012) lists us as one of the top 10 non selective schools/colleges in terms of the proportion of students going on to study at a Russell Group university (including Oxbridge). In 2012 and 2013 we were amongst the top 100 schools in the country in terms of GCSE performance.

What we look for

We employ a wide range of talented, well-qualified people capable of delivering a high standard of education and support for our students. You must be passionate about the power of education to improve the quality of life and the life chances of young people, driven to achieve better results through determination and commitment and motivated to work in partnership with everyone in the School.

We offer work experience and volunteer opportunities, which are unpaid, within teaching and support staff areas for those interested in gaining knowledge of a School environment or interested in teacher training.
